Diagnostics for Limited or No Connectivity
A more common issue seen when dealing with internet/network connection issues is:

Limited or No Connectivity.

I have listed a couple of simple diagnostics to try before posting in the forums, the majority of the time this will fix the issue.

The very first thing to try is called 'release/renew', this will renew your connection with the internet/network.

  • Go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt.
    (Windows Vista-10 users will have to right click Command Prompt; and press Run as administrator)
  • The Command Prompt will appear. (a black box)
  • Type in: ipconfig /release. (note the space between the g and /)
  • After it is done releasing. Type in:ipconfig /renew. (again note the space)
  • Once complete, Close the Command Prompt.

If the 'release/renew' steps above don't fix the problem, then you can try something that is referred to as 'Power Cycling' your modem/router.

  • Turn off all computers connected to the router or modem.
  • Unplug the power cord from the back of the modem and/or router.
  • Wait at least 2 minutes.
  • Plug in the power cord into the Modem and wait at least one minute for it to initialize.
  • Plug in the power cord into the Router and wait at least one minute for it to initialize.
  • Power on one computer and try to connect to the Internet with it.
  • If the one computer can connect to the Internet, then you can start turning on the other computers one-by-one and checking their Internet connection.
